London Fish Merchants Association
The interest of the merchants have been looked after by their own organisation, The London Fish Merchants' Association since 1880, representing the merchants' interest on the Billingsgate Market Consultative Advisory Committee,operating the Cold Store and the Ice Making facilities, organizing all the transport into Billingsgate as well as unloading and checking all fish deliveries that arrive at Billingsgate.
Today the Association committee is made up of eight elected member's from the merchants to promote and protect the interest of its members who trade at Billingsgate.
Billinsgate Seafood Training School
Inspired by Sydney Seafood School in Australia, the training school at Billingsgate Market was established in 2000. Supported by the merchants at Billingsgate, The City of London Corporation and The Worshipful Company of Fishmongers' - the school became a reality.
The charitable aim of the school is to encourage young people to enjoy seafood as part of a healthy diet and was established at a time when obseity levels began to soar and fish consumption was on the decline. A suitable space became available on the first floor of Billingsgate Market, a group of Trustees were recruited from within the industry, the market and Fishmongers' Company and the school was established.
The school has steadily grown over the last decade and the charitable objectives consistently met. After small beginnings the school can now boast annual training figures of around 6000, half of which are children, who attend classes at the school or benefit from our Outreach project free of charge.
The school also promotes the market and is focused on supporting the industry. We offer professional training courses to those who work within the industry or those wanting to gain a further understanding. We deliver general courses, seminars and individually tailored events on fishmongering, sustainability, quality assessment, product development and CIEH food safety courses. We are fortunate to have access to some of the most knowledgeable people from the industry and are able to offer a very high level of expertise in a relaxed, informative and enthusiastic environment.
To support the charitable aims of the school we also offer a very wide range of fee-paying courses to members of the public. These are designed to suit a range of budgets and requirements, from an inspirational early morning market visit and breakfast to a full day working with experienced chef trainers and fishmongers. We deliver these courses during the week, evenings and at weekends.
Our long term vision is to see the school grow with increased training figures and diversity of courses.
